Delay until not firing on the same scheduled time

I have requirements to calculate notification time 15 minutes before event start. For example, if event is starting today at 5PM, the notification email should be sent before 4:45 PM.

 

I'm using Delay until action with this timestamp: 2020-04-11T17:25:00Z

 

 

 

formatDateTime(triggerBody()?['StartTime'],'yyyy-MM-ddTHH:mmZ')

 

 

 

However, when I run this actin it doesn't fire at the same time above and instead the workflow is in stuck in running state on this action.

 

Anyone have thoughts on this? am I using the wrong action for the wrong purpose? Any other way to perform the same functionality noting that I'm getting the events from a list managed by PR team.

Hi!

According to this thread, datetime format shall be

YYYY-MM-DDTHH:MM: SSZ

so, the format you are using looks fine.

 

Maybe a TimeZone related problem? I guess Flow considers such datetime in UTC format

More info about TimeZone and Delay UNtil here:

Hope this helps
